We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I made from scratch eggnog for many years to raves from the crowd but was always uneasy about serving them raw eggs.
Then one year after scouring the intertubes for alternatives I developed this recipe myself and the crowd never missed a beat, the raves still come and I don't have to worry about raw eggs...(plus it's a cinch to make.)
3 quarts of your favorite store bought eggnog
2 quarts Haagen Dazs Vanilla ice cream
1 quart Haagen Dazs Dulce de Leche ice cream
(soften ice creams in the refrigerator but don't melt all the way. Also why make a base when Haagen Dazs does it for you?)
1 quart Makers Mark bourbon
Fresh nutmeg, cinnamon and honey to taste
(dissolve the honey in a portion of the eggnog before adding or it'll settle on the bottom and be harder to incorporate.)
Mix everything together and let the mixture ripen in the fridge for a minimum of 24 hours but 2-3 days is best. This cuts the harshness of the bourbon.
And a very Merry Christmas to everyone on this wonderful site!
I saw this and immediately tried it. I substituted more milk for the cream and cinnamon for the nutmeg. I beat the egg whites a little too stiff but otherwise it's a good recipe. The Mrs. liked it because it's not too heavy.
Hold the cackleberrys and the moo-juice and jus' give me that ol' Kentucky corn; neat or with a couple cubes. I don't mind if you drink nog and I'll even serve you some. Nothing like a little Bottled in Bond round 'bout Christmastide. Gin and tonic is the only cocktail I can tolerate, if it has a a squeeze of lime and Canada Dry or Schwepe's tonic--otherwise, pour some straight whiskey for red.
Drink up and Merry Christmas (I can say that, can't I?)
